Adding Your Student to a Bus

Make sure that ALL information is completed in it's entireity as this could delay the process.
Please note that if you have multiple students that each form needs to be updated for each individual student.
If an email is not received it does take up to 3 school days for Final Forms to transfer information to our routing system. An email to our secretary will speed the process to 1-2 school days.

Please make sure that the parent/guardian email is up to date as this is the main form of communication with our district and parents.
Step 5.Transportation Secretary communicates changes and updates to Bus/Route Drivers.
Temporary Bus Pass
Whether it is for the Morning or Afternoon routes, our office must be notified if your child needs a temporary pass to ride a bus or a different bus than they are not routed for.
This is to ensure the safety of our students, your child and our staff.
If our office is not notified and permission not granted to our drivers, by our supervisor, your student will not be permitted to board the bus for transportation.
The Transportation Department and its employees are dedicated to the safety and well being of all children attending the Wooster City School District system. Each student is valuable to all of us and as such will be treated with respect and dignity. We have committed ourselves as the Transportation Department to ensure that each child be given a safe trip to school in the morning and a safe return home at the end of the day.
